Velikiye Luki authorities named version of mass fainting at school – Rossiyskaya Gazeta

Tatyana Loznitskaya, head of the education department of the Velikiye Luki administration, voiced an unexpected version of the reasons for the emergency at school # 7, where three children lost consciousness on the line, and several more needed the help of doctors.

As the administration of Velikiye Luki reports with reference to the official, the children could be worried.

– The event was solemn, there were speeches of a patriotic and moral orientation, special music. It was a serious and exciting event. Under such circumstances, one child could feel unwell, and already next to him the student standing next to him treated his well-being more attentively than usual, – noted Loznitskaya and drew attention to the fact that the teachers themselves on the ruler asked the children if they were feeling well.

“And after such a question, everyone involuntarily begins to think about their well-being. And it already seems that a special, agitated state is not from the solemnity of the moment, but from poor health,” the official said, who, by the way, was on the same line, after which 13 children were hospitalized in the local hospital, and in the evening another child was taken to the ward, he felt bad at home.

More than two days have passed, but there is still no clarity on this situation. In particular, if at first the children were hospitalized with suspicion of poisoning with an unknown substance, then later this version was actually refuted by the results of the examinations. It turned out that there are no foreign substances in the organisms of children, water and air in the school also turned out to be absolutely safe.

Now the children are still in the hospital, everyone is doing well, but the students are not being discharged, because the doctors are still trying to establish what happened to the students and whether it can happen again.

Norilsk Nickel assesses the damage from the fuel spill in Norilsk at 21.4 billion rubles

Norilsk Nickel has estimated at 21.4 billion rubles. the extent of damage to water bodies and soil due to the accident with a spill of 21,000 diesel fuel near Norilsk, which occurred at the end of May. This is seven times lower than the estimate prepared by Rosprirodnadzor – 148 billion rubles.

“According to NTEK (Norilsk-Taimyr Energy Company, part of the Norilsk Nickel group of companies), using the current methodology for calculating environmental damage, and taking into account all the circumstances of the incident, the total amount of damage to the environment is 21.4 billion rubles “, – said in the message of” Norilsk Nickel “.

At the same time, Norilsk Nickel stressed that NTEK does not dispute the damage to the environment and is ready to take all the necessary measures to completely eliminate the consequences of the fuel spill.

The most fundamental discrepancies in the calculation of damage, according to NTEK, consist in the application of an “unjustifiably overestimated coefficient of the duration of the negative impact (“ Kdl ”) of harmful substances on a water body in the absence of measures to eliminate it, as well as in a significant overestimation of the volume of oil products that have entered water bodies. “.

In addition, the company criticized the calculations of Rosprirodnadzor on the duration of the negative impact on the environment: the agency applied the maximum possible coefficient that is used in the case when the violator did not take any action within 500 hours (more than 20 days) from the moment of the accident to eliminate its consequences.

Rosprirodnadzor justifies this by the fact that the consequences of the incident were not eliminated within 500 hours. In its response to the claim, Norilsk Nickel asserts that it is necessary to apply a coefficient of 1.1, since when determining it, it is necessary to take into account the time between the time the accident is discovered and the start of work on its elimination, and not the time of completion of such work. The total cost of Norilsk Nickel to eliminate the consequences of the incident today is about 12 billion rubles.

“NTEK also considers the definition of damage to the soil to be incorrect (738.6 million rubles). In the opinion of NTEK, Rosprirodnadzor incorrectly identified three elements of the formula: it several times overestimated the area of ​​the contaminated site, included in the calculations of indicators of the degree of pollution not only the indicator for oil products, but also for other pollutants, and also referred to fertile soils areas that are industrial lands (for which special conditions apply), the statement says.

The incident with the spill of about 20,000 tons of oil products took place on May 29 in the area of ​​the carriageway leading to CHPP-3 of the Norilsk-Taimyr Energy Company (NTEC, a subsidiary of MMC Norilsk Nickel). In early July, Rosprirodnadzor reported that the damage to water bodies was estimated at almost 148 billion rubles, to soils at 738 million rubles. On September 10, the department filed an official lawsuit against Norilsk Nickel for compensation for environmental damage. The company has already named the amount of the claim at 148 billion rubles. overpriced.

Norilsk Nickel has reserved $ 2.1 billion for the liquidation of the consequences of the accident, having estimated the work on liquidation of the consequences of the accident at 10 billion rubles. The company believes that it will be possible to fully complete the program of cleaning and remediation of lands contaminated after the accident by the end of 2023.

An approval that is not available because, according to the representative of the Platform, “what is not wanted is to mortgage the mountains, one of the main values ​​that we have, during the 30 years that the concessions of the parks “, since in addition” the areas are used as economic use at the level of pastures, livestock and other types of activities such as tourism, which today generates a fabric that is true that it is small and should be promoted “, but” very diverse “which” is not to be replaced by a monopoly of multinationals that want to exploit a single resource and make the area exclusively dependent on a single company or a single resource “.

Diez recalled that “there are many cases at the national level and in the province of León itself of what in the end this type of monopolies suppose the day that companies decide to close and disappear because they are no longer profitable”, so that “the inhabitants They are once again in an empty territory and without resources “and” they would throw away the last 15 years in which they are working to diversify the economic offer “.

For all this, Sergio Diez set his sights on the actions taken by the Platform at the time the administrative process of the wind farm projects begins in order to present allegations. For this reason, from the Platform for the Future of the Central Mountain of Leonesa, informative talks are being held in different parts of the province, while keeping an eye on these deadlines to start the legal processes.

Elevator accident in Boston: woman crushed by elevator – neighbor had warned her – news abroad

Despite a neighbor’s warning, she climbed into the old elevator, pushed a large package into the cabin, and then the tragedy began. A terrible accident shakes the faculty and students at Boston University.

Only a few weeks ago Carrie O’Connor (38) moved into her new apartment in Boston (US state Massachusetts) and often used the aging elevator – despite its quirks. Also on Monday afternoon (local time) – and this time he was O’Connor’s undoing.

The university professor (who taught French) was about to use the elevator to transport a large and heavy package. As the “Sun” and other media reports, O’Connor was just about to lift the package on the first floor into the elevator when it suddenly rushed the depths.

Apparently the woman had not yet fully boarded herself – the elevator cabin tore off her arm. According to eyewitness reports, the elevator should have stopped just below the ground floor, so that the roof of the cabin could be seen from the lobby.

The rescue workers, who were immediately alerted, could only determine the woman’s death. According to resident Leanne Scorzoni, an eyewitness to the terrible accident is said to have warned the professor shortly before the tragedy.

She told CBS TV, “I heard someone carry a package down the hall. He helped her carry the box, then took the stairs and said to her, ‘Hey, be careful. You have to open the door, then enter and only then press the button. ‘”A little later she would have heard a“ hideous scream ”. “We ran into the hallway, there was a man who was completely in shock and hyperventilating. He shouted: ‘She is dead, she is dead!’ “

  • Interesting too

Scorzoni himself suspects that O’Connor got to the button too early. “Whatever she was trying to get in must have touched the button so that the elevator started moving.”

The police are now investigating the cause of the accident. The box was secured. Now it should be clarified whether the elevator was possibly overloaded. The system from the 1920s is said to have survived routine maintenance only last year.

A spokesman for Boston University said, dismayed, “This is a terrible tragedy and a great loss. We lost a bright young life, it’s a terrible situation. It’s heartbreaking. “

Deputy Magaña resigns from jurisdiction and lawyer affirms that there is no longer a case for “manipulation” of criminal evidence | News from El Salvador

The Prosecutor’s Office presented yesterday in the Assembly the formal requirement for the deputies to withdraw the jurisdiction of Deputy Magaña and thus face the criminal justice if it is declared that he is guilty of the death of his friend Francisco Moya.

ARENA’s dissident deputy, Arturo Magaña, announced this Thursday on his Twitter account that he will renounce his jurisdiction to face justice before the prosecution’s accusation for the crime of “wrongful death”, as a result of his involvement in an accident of transit on August 29, where one of the companions who was in the vehicle that Magaña was driving died.

“One of the strong criticisms of the population is that the deputies hide behind the law. For this reason, I have decided to voluntarily renounce jurisdiction and submit to justice like all Salvadorans. You need to set a precedent. I will formally present this resignation in writing ”, Magaña has published this Wednesday morning on her Twitter.

The Prosecutor’s Office presented yesterday in the Assembly the formal requirement for the deputies to withdraw the jurisdiction of Deputy Magaña and thus face the criminal justice if it is declared that he is guilty of the death of his friend Francisco Moya, who died after the spectacular accident in a San Salvador hospital.

There were also several injuries and material damage to the vehicles involved in the road accident.

Magaña underwent the toxicological test 10 days after the accident and an alcotest test was not performed on the day of the accident, these situations make the criminal lawyer Marcela Galeas assess that in the case of the deputy Magaña that he renounces the jurisdiction or not, it does not have much relevance. “In this case it does not do much harm, there is a manipulation of the initial proceedings, there is no case built, it does not matter if the jurisdiction is removed or not, it will not be sentenced, perhaps assume civil liabilities, compensation payment, but not even so, because there are no elements that constitute that he was driving, the entire complaint has been exercised incorrectly, they are going to allege that, that there is no appearance of good law, the elements provided in the requirement ”, explained Galeas.

The deputies of the Assembly have shown their consent to withdraw Magaña’s immunity so that he submits to the courts. Just yesterday Congress accepted the tax requirement and passed it on to the Legislation Committee of the Assembly, who will have to analyze whether there are sufficient elements to create a special pretrial commission against Magaña.

a man causes accidents on the highway, an “Islamist” act

In Germany, a man caused several accidents with his car on the evening of Tuesday, August 18 on a motorway through the city of Berlin, injuring six people, three of them seriously, in an act described by the prosecution as“Islamist”.

This voluntary car-ramming act is “Motivated by Islamism according to the current state of the investigation”, said a spokesperson for the local prosecution, while according to several media the perpetrator is a 30-year-old Iraqi who yelled «Allah Akbar» when getting out of his vehicle.

Police cut off traffic on this busy highway for several hours, causing massive traffic jams, to check the contents of suspicious boxes left by the man in his vehicle. One of the boxes was opened remotely as a precaution with a very high pressure water sprayer. But nothing suspicious was immediately found.

Dozens of attacks foiled since 2016

The German authorities are on the alert regarding the Islamist threat weighing on the country, especially since a ram truck attack claimed by Daesh which killed 12 people in December 2016 in Berlin. Since that date, the German authorities have foiled a dozen attempted attacks of this type, including two in November 2019, according to the police.

Since 2013, the number of Islamists considered dangerous in the country has increased fivefold to currently stand at 680. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has often been accused by the far right of having contributed to these attacks by choosing to host hundreds of thousands of refugees in 2015. In recent years, however, Germany has faced another form of terrorism, which has come from the far right.
